This template contains the necessary meta-data to allow users who are using accelerated editing to create any grammatical forms semi-automatically.




  • 1: Ending of the genitive singular. Choose between s, es, ses, (e)s (if the e in the genitive singular is optional), or (s) (if the s in the genitive singular is optional).
  • 2: Ending of the nominative plural if there is no change (e.g. umlaut) to the basic stem. The most likely choices are e, en, er, ien, and s. Leave this parameter blank if the plural is endingless (i.e. has the same form as the singular).
  • 3: Set to n if no -n is to be added in the dative plural. This is mostly for nouns ending in -chen and -lein; it is not needed when parameter 2 is set to en, ien, or s (in which case the template automatically knows not to add the -n).
  • pl: Complete nominative plural form if there is a change (e.g. umlaut) to the basic stem.
